Our LEP expects our productivity to double – something never done anywhere else in the UK!

“… The Productivity Strategy aims to double productivity in the area over 20 years, focussing on themes including leadership, housing, connectivity, infrastructure, skills and training. It looks at growth, capitalising on the area’s distinctive assets and maximising the potential of digital technology.

Cllr Fothergill said: “We can do some of this ourselves but some aspects will need the support from Government which is why the Joint Committee is so important. …”


Right! So, that’s ok then – the government will achieve something here they can’t achieve anywhere else!!!
